Connections: April 29.17

I have been in an alternate universe

a place I have been before

where perpetual motion is rampant

and parents a mere twoscore.

There’s soccer and softball and homework

lives lived digitally

two kids, two cats, two dogs,

and Grandma (that would be me).

Mom in a sling and Dad far away

a convergence of planning and chance

with non-stop pre-teen rhythm

and flying by the seat of our pants.

I lived in a place such as this

in a dim and distant past

when I had an abundance of pep

and my hormones hadn’t lapsed

but now my creaky bones

move far less supplely

and I don’t know when I’ll recover

from the onslaught of energy.

Connections: January 13.17

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAI live next door

to three little boys

three times the life

three times the joys

(you thought I was going to say¬†noise, didn’t you?)

perpetual motion

hilarity reigns

six little legs

endless ball games

they never stop

they never yield

come winter or summer

my yard is outfield.
